I swear, I haven’t seen anything as diabolically funny in politics as Rahm Emanuel’s anointment of Limbaugh as uncrowned leader of the Republican Party…since Fox News chose Alan Colmes to represent liberalism against the *visigoth Hannity.
I just got through watching Letterman: “What about this bonehead Rush Limbaugh? Honest to God, I mean, what is going on there?” Funny. This whole thing is gold, Jerry, comedy gold! If he is or if he isn’t the public face of the GOP, it doesn’t matter; it’s a lose-lose situation for Republicans. But he is. So that’s funny.
U2 was not so funny, by the way. They’re on all week promoting a new album, and judging by the song I just heard…eh. Not so much. Jimmy Fallon takes over for Conan, and I couldn’t really watch it. Awkward. Uncomfortable. Even Van the Man can’t save it, but I turn back to watch him do an Astral Weeks song. Great album. Jimmy needs to work out the kinks. Meanwhile I watch the last half hour of The Sixth Sense. That guy has never made a good movie since, has he? Ah well. That’s all for Monday night. It is now Tuesday.
* Oh yeah: Visigoth – A member of the western Goths that invaded the Roman Empire in the fourth century a.d. and settled in France and Spain, establishing a monarchy that lasted until the early eighth century? From the context, I thought maybe it meant asshole.
